Generous teacher

Here is a page from Stacy Yung's site:

I use CommonLit, and while parents can help their children with it, most have given up because it's rigorous. LOL I also teach fifth, and I've gotten through to most parents that their children need...

Pear Deck or Near Pod

You can use Slides with either of these platforms. You lead the lesson, and they allow students to work on their own copy of the lesson slides.

I'll be happy to see students, but the rest of it, not so much.

On my Windows personal computer, I use Downloader for YouTube by One Click. It has tons of ads on my end, but I download, save as mp4, and upload to my Google Drive. That way, I know exactly what I'm...

Bottom line- They're still comfortable.

I agree that the attitude of students is exhausting! They don't care if the assignments are done. They don't care that they aren't learning. Granted, they are children who don't have the maturity to...

Fun escape

I'm enjoying the regency costumes. The stays aren't quite accurate. If they were, though, there wouldn't be the "cinch the waist" scenes that people are into.

I love the mix of faces and...

Districts don't care about the teacher.

For the district, it's a question of checking off boxes. It sounds like you have been flexible, reliable, and "useful." I had a friend once who subbed, including many long terms, for six years before...

Did you shut down the computer between the uninstall/reinstall?

Fifth is the new sixth or seventh

My fifth graders have the interests and concerns of the sixth graders I taught years ago. They want to read books that look older.

I second the recommendation of graphic novels.

Have not responded, yet

Thank you, all, for your support. I initially felt like I was being a little nasty, but you are right that I need to set boundaries.

For our hybrid model, I have to post a schedule of individual...

Yes, modified

We still run drills, but there is no evacuation. Basically, we review procedures.

Our classes are spaced at 6 ft., masks required for third-sixth.

Technical "noise"

In audio recording, the nemesis is what's called "noise." It could be interference from another source, or it could just be a lousy, unshielded onboard mic.

If moving other electronics out of the...

Had to get a new one, too

I just switched from a 10 to an 11 because my coffee spilled into the pocket in my purse where my phone was.

i like the 11, but it is a little big for my hand, and it seems heavier, even though...

Use it- love it

I use Classcraft with fifth and/or sixth graders depending on the year.

I think of it as Class Dojo meets World of War Craft. The avatars really drive the students' interest at first.

You're welcome!

I see my students in an AM/PM model right now. One group did the hidden cupcake monster and the other the candy corn monster. They are fifth grade, and both were a huge hit.

You can customize your options so that "reply all" isn't the first one in the list. I changed mine after I accidentally replied all. Since I hate it, too, I thought I'd better do something about my...
